Need help to export file in .DP format from CC after alignment & merge

Post by Prithvi » Mon May 27, 2019 10:14 am

Hi,

I am new to CloudCompare and would appreciate any help on exporting aligned & merged file into .DP format.
I have tried it on v2.11 alpha as well as stable v2.10.2 (windows 64 bits) but it displays an error msg.- 'This function is not implemented yet'
Can i downgrade to any lower version? where to get that version?

I will use the output file in Recap and then in Autocad.
(I tried few another formats but the file size shoots up enormously.)

regards,
Prithvi

Hi,

No sadly this feature has probably never been implemented!

Thanks for the response Mr. Daniel!

I saw a tutorial video from DotProduct wherein they demonstrated saving the output file in .DP format.
In the demo they seem to have used CC version 2.7.0 stereo (64bit)
(refer video link: https://youtu.be/48xILOe9d7I)

Ok sorry, you are right, that's definitely an option! :shock:

And actually there were two different issues here:
1- the DP export filter was broken in the last version (it's now fixed if you download the latest 2.11.alpha version)
2 - you need a grid structure attached to your point cloud to actually be able to export the cloud as a DP file (which means that you need a cloud imported from a FARO or PTX file)

Thanks for the feedback!
